Due to the lack in the availability of the stars and the plan had to be abandoned when it proved all which is impossible to secure the calibre performers in which the Festival is renowned in the platforms such as locally, regionally and internationally.”

The statement further emphasized, “FAS7STAR also expressed gratitude to the residents of Barbados and the regional and international communities for their continued support since 2005 when the first time a festival was started and expressed pleasure with the launch of the ground-breaking Reggae on the Hill. It also stated that the director of FAS7SATR is also looking for the return of the normal phase and so that they could become able to stage the Barbados Reggae Festival 2023.
